"The biggest hardship we have faced in our family is inadequacy of farmland. We reside and till in about half an acre of land. Unfortunately, the small farm generates little produce that can hardly sustain us. Accordingly, we do not get any surplus which we could sell to get some money for our family use. Hence, the inadequacy of farmland serves as the biggest hardship we have faced in our family because we rely mainly on subsistence farming."

"My top concern is Unemployment because it makes me weary and lack of morale in doing anything in life. Am a family man and so I have people looking up-to me not only my marriage but also my extended family, once I have no job I can barely provide for my dependants nor have a growth in my entire life. It's like am living a stagnant life which means I cease to exist. Even though my government tries to bridge this gap of unemployment it's like next to impossible,I hope GiveDirectly will do something to help them. "
